...First and foremost let the doctor KNOW
 if your loved one is capable of hearing and "getting " what he is saying
They are NOT invisible entity's in this just because they have this DD
 
STages are so different with so many and many a time I have
Heard where a person will go in
AND they are talked about AS IF they are not EVEN there
SO WRONG IMHO........
 
IF they are capable of getting involved in the TX the better it may be as I see it
If the doctor is rushed and literally pushes you out the door
CHANGE DOCTORS..........
 
Our seniours deserve BETTER tretment and respect
Sometimes they will feel more "intune and proud " of the
fact they are brought into the whole discussion
Ask your loved one prior to going
There just may be some questions THEY may have that they have not brought out to us
And if they are with it enough they should be allowed to advocate to a point for selves
 
THIS is soley my opinion.............LYN

**
When you have to be the advocate make sure you are the best one for your loved one
DEMAND to know what meds loved one is on
Demand to know what is or may be coming next with loved one
Find out WHAT you can do to help loved ones if they live with you
 
ALL PERTINENT info is needed to be answered
Write questions down first before you go........
BE THERE FOR THEM AS I KNOW YOU WANT TO BE
 
 
Again just my opinion...LYN
